This seasonal tea in one of my favorites. While salted cherry tree leaves may sound off-putting, this tea is actually very good. The black tea base is very smooth with a touch of caramel and vanilla flavors. I’m not sure how to even begin to explain how the cherry tree leaves taste, but I will give it my best. The cherry tree leaves do not taste salty at all, they add a crisp fresh flavor that I lack anything to compare them to. If I had to say what they reminded me of, the only comparison I could come up with is that they are reminiscent of how a plants just starting to re-grow in the springtime smell.

THIS TEA IS NOT FOR ME.
I went to Lupcia in Tokyo and decided to change things up and get a black tea with a Japanese twist… absolutely not for me.
I would love to swap this tea with someone because it might end up being used for a burnt offering in regards to the sadness it caused my taste buds; however, maybe your taste buds have a different way of interpreting taste and could find joy from this.

Strange, I don’t really taste much salt or brine at all. This comes across as a pleasant black tea, almost Darjeeling-like, quite crisp and refreshing. I expected a stronger taste of the salted cherry leaves but I can barely tell they’re present. Nice tea, inoffensive, just not as special as I expected. For the price, I expected something unique.

EDIT: After a few more steepings, I’ve nudged up the score a bit – if you put in a LOT of leaf, you get more of the sakura note, and then it’s better.
